Created in 1982, Stone Island is an Italian men’s apparel brand from Ravarino, Italy that puts an emphasis on using innovative fabrics and technology. Recognized by its iconic compass patch that was inspired by military wear, the first Stone Island clothes were made from extremely durable truck tarpaulin for long-lasting pieces and functional wear.
The brand’s style is comprised of casual and utilitarian-inspired designs that are crafted using in-house complex dying processes and textile treatments. The innovative pieces include nylon metal jackets, packable bomber jackets, cargo pants, outerwear and 100% cotton shirts. Stone Island practices research and experimentation in all of their materials to deliver the most functional pieces and designs.
Since its launch, Stone Island has become one of the world’s biggest names when it comes to outerwear for both functional and fashionable apparel. Stone Island can be found on the backs of top celebrities such as Drake and has partnered with big brands such as Supreme. Stone Island’s use of unique materials and treatments is what sets it apart from its competitors and puts it in a league of its own.
